I just noticed that someone has a score of over 10,000,000 points on the Tetris page here. I want to know how this is possible.

I don't think I have even had half as many points as the lowest high score value. Impressive.

This has nothing to do with the post but..Happy Birthday!

Thanks, Stef. It's actually tomorrow, but I have no problem stretching it across 2 days.

Happy early b-day! Did you have your heart set on getting a lot of fruitcake or just a taste, J? I am wondering because (although I find this hard to believe) I have a bit more demand for fruitcake than supply.

A taste will do, Alexis. I'm very curious to see how it came out.

You guys are off the subject!

Can we ask the guy that got 5 million (SSU) how he (or she, although that seems like a remote possibility) thinks "Hurricane," the 8-digit Titan of Tetris did it? And how long it must have taken?

I feel like I'm witnessing an epic battle between two god-like internet gameplayers.

If they're deliberately slowing down their computers, then replace "god-like" with "crippled by obsessive-compulsive disorder."

HB, I can only imagine that the players with millions of points are slowing down the flash app somehow to make these scores possible. There is no conceivable way that anyone could play at the speed that many points would require.

I wonder if it really takes that long. Maybe once you're on level 40, you just get sick amounts of points for each Tetris and they pile up sort of quick.

Well, then the only question remaining regards you, Jason. If these guys told you how to slow the flash app down, how long would you be likely to play until you could regain the #1 high score.

My limit would be 72 straight hours. After that I'd need sleep and a few hours in therapy.

I'd pass the knowledge on to you. I've over Tetris now.
